These are difficult times. It’s a different way of living, especially for those who live alone. My daily readings were in Thessalonians last week and these verses spoke to me again.
Be joyful always,pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances,for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thess. Ch, 5. v.16 & 17
I am glad Paul said in all circumstances and not for all circumstances. There are always things to thank God for, even now, family, friends. Most of all we thank Him for Jesus and the wonderful salvation He brought us.The wonderful thing to me is that God gives us joy as we thank and praise Him and how we need that joy now. It has been my experience that even in the darkest days of my life my heart has been filled with joy as I thank God.
Inexpressible and glorious joy Peter calls it! Peter Ch 1 v. 8
As Nehemiah said long ago
“The joy of the Lord is your strength “. Ch.8 v 10
With my love to you all
